  , Mathews to Watling, OUT,
  , Mathews to Watling, no run, good-length ball is defended down to mid on
  , Mathews to Watling, no run, angled in slightly towards the batsman, who defends it back
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, presses forward and blocks the delivery on the off side
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, goes back and defends the ball to the leg side
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, fullish on the stumps, pushed back to the bowler
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, given out lbw after a loud appeal, Craig didn't offer a shot, mind you! Craig reviews it straightaway. It pitched outside off on length and came in, striking the front pad well outside the crease and outside the line, but that doesn't matter in this case. Ball-tracking says it's not turning enough and is even bouncing over, the decision is overturned
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, flighted just outside off, thick inside edge off the drive takes the ball back to the bowler
  , Kaushal to Watling, 1 run, presses forward for the length delivery outside off and a thick outside edge goes behind square on off
  , Mathews to Watling, 1 run, fullish and angled in towards the pads, clipped to deep midwicket for one
  , Mathews to Watling, no run, leans forward this time and blocks the ball back
  , Mathews to Watling, no run, stays on the back foot to defend the ball back to the bowler
  , Mathews to Watling, no run, back of length outside off, pushed into the covers
  , Mathews to Craig, 1 run, punches the short of length ball off the back foot in the gap for one
  , Mathews to Craig, no run, angled across Craig who chases the widish delivery and misses
  , Kaushal to Watling, no run, defends the ball dangerously on the back foot as he goes back and that one turned a lot but he covered it well
  , Kaushal to Watling, no run, goes in the crease again and defends the turning ball back
  , Kaushal to Watling, no run, goes on the back foot and defends the ball to short leg
  , Kaushal to Watling, no run, loud appeal for lbw as Watling leans forward for the flighted delivery, the ball turned in from outside off and probably hit him in line. Sri Lanka review it as the appeal is turned down and ball-tracking shows the ball was turning too much to miss the stumps
  , Kaushal to Craig, 1 run, on middle and leg now, helped to deep long on for one
  , Kaushal to Craig, no run, fullish outside the off stump, pushed back to the bowler

  , Mathews to Craig, 1 run, goes on the back foot and clips the delivery wide of mid-on for one
  , Mathews to Craig, no run, another swing and a miss as he chases a delivery that's angling away from him
  , Mathews to Craig, no run, straighter towards just outside off stump, Watling gets behind the ball and pushes it down to mid off
  , Mathews to Craig, no run, angled across the batsman outside off, he chases and misses
  , Kaushal to Craig, 1 run, goes back in the crease and pushes the ball into the covers
  , Kaushal to Watling, 1 run, helps the ball with the turn to the leg side from outside off
